GCSE students at St Benedict’s School in Ealing have achieved outstanding results: 69.1% of all the exams taken have been graded 9-7 (A*/A), with 47.6% awarded grades 9-8 (A*).
This is the highest proportion of top grades ever achieved at the school in a year when examinations were taken.
Thirteen students achieved straight 9-8 (A*) grades; Zach Khan and Benjy Thornton did exceptionally well, achieving grade 9 in all subjects.
GCSE results were strong across in all subjects and were exceptionally good in History, Chemistry, Physics and Classical Civilisation.
Headmaster Andrew Johnson said: "I am delighted that St Benedict’s GCSE students have been so successful.
"They have worked hard, in another challenging year, to achieve these outstanding results and are a credit to their families, and to their teachers, who have given their dedicated support throughout.
"Academic performance at St Benedict’s continues its strong upward trajectory; like the A Level results last week, these are the best ever achieved in a year when examinations were taken under normal conditions."
